Per­fect six

The Ep­son XP-760 and XP-860 are the only two print­ers in the group that have a con­ven­tional ‘photo’ ink line-up con­tain­ing six dye-based inks, in­clud­ing light cyan and light ma­genta.

Print res­o­lu­tion

The Canon print­ers have a max­i­mum print res­o­lu­tion of 4800x1200dpi and 2.0pl droplet size, whereas the Ep­son print­ers have a slightly higher 5760x1440dpi res­o­lu­tion with 1.5pl droplets.

Ex­tra-large inks

All print­ers on test can use ‘XL’ higher-ca­pac­ity car­tridges. With these, ink costs per millil­itre work out at £1.36/$0.82 for the Canons, £1.48/$1.01 for the Ep­son XP-530/630 and £1.16/$0.78 for the Ep­son XP-760/860.

Our tested speeds for top-qual­ity bor­der­less A4 photo print­ing came out at 2m 05s for both Canons, 2m 52s for the XP-530/630 and 2m 45s for the XP-760/860.
